A very sound question, because as you note, I have long witnessed this to-and-fro as well. Quite honestly, I think NCIS and show boss Gary Glasberg face a tremendously difficult juggling act with this (would-be) couple because it is TV’s most watched program, and like a game of Jenga, you can’t be quite sure which slight move could send things toppling. Is NCIS No. 1 because it metes out exactly 25 milligrams of romance every third episode, and never a bit more? Is there a fear that going all-in with Tiva will soap up the show too much? Look at the comments sure to populate below; if one out of three is against the coupling, does that confirm the show would risk disenfranchising some 5 million viewers? (And if you do put them together, will the outcry nonetheless continue if “not enough” intimacy is displayed, a la Castle, presenting a no-win scenario?) All I can do on my end is press for some semblance of concrete evidence behind any loaded quotes (about any topic), then trust the show will follow through to some degree.
In other words, f-f-f-friendship is what it will be and we should be grateful for the extra “f”s because that’s how we know it’s special.
You do realize this was solely Matt’s opinion and had nothing to do with the show? He is just commenting on the fact why he thinks it is taking so long and how he feels about the whole thing. I mean his comments constantly get invaded by heavy pros and antis. It is not a spoiler and also not Gary Glasberg’s statement.
I do realize, and am perhaps overreacting in the heat of the moment. It is my frustration speaking. And I will be watching in S11 to see what actually happens.
I really get it. I think they should be braver, too. I have no doubts it’s gonna happen though. The question is when and how. I think Gary mentioned it three times that they are getting there but it’s nothing they take lightly. This is why you can see he is a bit scared of it and trying to prolong it. But journalists are starting to pick up on it so I think if he wants to uphold a good reputation he will have to do it rather sooner than later. Like I said, I get the frustration but this answer by Matt is nothing that is concerning. It’s simply him analyzing the situation.
Got any NCIS scoops, particularly on McGee? –Marla
As revealed in the season finale, Tim’s got himself a new honey. And though show boss Gary Glasberg has yet to decide what “type” the mysterious Delilah is, viewers will eventually get to lay eyes on her. “I’m hoping to pick [that storyline] up and explain more — and hopefully, at some point, we’ll get to meet Delilah, as well,” Glasberg says.

“The show’s in a really fantastic place and we’re constantly surprising each other about where we want to go. And as long as we keep feeling that, I don’t really see an end in sight for NCIS.”
- Gary Glasberg about season 11
NCIS | To Inside Liners Nisha, Joyce and others, this is for you. With many “Tiva” fans fretting that the pair’s season-ending heart-to-heart essentially landed Tony in the dreaded Friend Zone, showrunner Gary Glasberg maintains that over the course of Season 10, “We made huge strides. Their relationship has evolved, has changed. They’re a little more open with each other and a little more emotionally connected, certainly more than where we were at the beginning of the season.” With that same passionate group of ‘shippers having been vested in “The Year of Tiva” (a mantra initiated by, I believe it was, Michael Weatherly), Glasberg admits the couple’s closeness “may not be the big leap that a lot of people would like it to be, but I also feel like we’re enjoying the pace at which this is happening. That’s not to say we’re not headed in the direction everyone would like to go, but I think we’re getting there.” As the EP explains, “It’s very complicated when two agents who are working together get into a relationship, and that’s something that [Tony and Ziva] would be very conscious of. So I think they would tread lightly, which is why, in theory, we’re treading lightly and being very careful about the steps that we take.” (As for Cote de Pablo’s contract status for Season 11, as of Wednesday night, Glasberg had no update to share: “I wish I had information for you, but I don’t.”)
Q: Are Palmer’s baby plans going to be a big part of his arc next season?
Glasberg: I think so. I’d like to get into it. It’s sort of a subject matter that I think is important to talk about and I’d like to do it properly and I’d like to see he and Breena go through the rigors that are…
My emotions are split on this future of T/Z “spoiler”
yay! TPTB are going to have an actual sit down meeting and discuss the future of T/Z.
boo! He doesn’t know where he is going to take it? That makes me a little nervous.
Gary’s answer to the “friendzoned” question.
NCIS closed out its tenth season with an episode that left…
Here I was thinking ‘wow, I sort of love that lack of spoilers and pics in the lead up to the finale’.
Meanwhile, over at GG’s place
ahaha like samm said, Gary saw us and we waved and he smiled and then just stared at us. I think he was half waiting for us to come over and hug him or stab him or both.
Despite the fact that on last week’s episode of “NCIS” Director Leon Vance (Rocky Carroll) told Ziva David (Cote de Pablo) that Homeland would have to handle the Ilan Bodnar (Oded Fehr) investigation, his eyes gave off a completely different signal, urging her to do whatever needed to be done to bring Bodnar to justice. Not surprising, when you consider that Bodnar murdered Vance’s wife and Ziva’s father, and that this particular branch of naval investigators tends to color outside the lines.
So when NCIS tracked down the ship on which Bodnar was trying to flee the U.S., Ziva headed out on her own to try to capture — or kill him. The two got into some serious fisticuffs — with Bodnar falling to his death, just as Leroy Gibbs (Mark Harmon), Tony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly), and Tim McGee (Sean Murray) arrived to try to keep her from doing something stupid.
This week on “NCIS,” there will be consequences to their actions. Colin Hanks (“Dexter”) guest stars as Department of Defense Investigator Richard Parsons, who has been called in to scrutinize the NCIS team in response to the Bodnar case. Ziva could be in some serious hot water, but she won’t be alone.
